The food and the atmosphere was excellent. We did wait a bit for our food but it was definitely worth the wait.

Meeting friends visiting from DC area. They were staying in Groton. Olio's stood up to their standard, very high. Everyone enjoyed the meal. I had the seafood spaghetti, very good. A bit pricey, $120.00 for our two dinners, not bad once in a while.More

Amazing niche on a busy road surrounded by gas stations and businesses. Open the door and enter the warmth of a family of eaters drinkers and gracious staff. Also can't tell who's who. I love the bar nestled within one side of the floor. Cozy...More
